of bad stuff. just this week the libya situation put the president on the defensive. the economy speaks for itself. so the only place the voters can really see the obama-biden ticket under pressure is in the debates. on the other side we're hoping governor romney will sit for an interview with us. we're negotiating that right now. we'll have an update for you on monday. generally speaking, mr. romney has been more accessible than president obama, but it is true the romney campaign is playing it very safe. at the debate tonight, vice president biden is the experienced hand. he's 27 years older than paul ryan and biden knows how to attack. the congressman is an unknown quantity when it comes to dealing with this kind of pressure. but talking points expects mr. ryan to be armed with panels that might slow down mr. biden who will most likely go after ryan hard. be interesting to see hot congressman handles that. that's a memo. top of the story, four years ago it was sarah palin debating joe biden. >> all you got to do is go down union street and go to katy's restaurant or walk into home dep
